The project is under construction at the edge of Bijlmerpark in the central area of Amsterdam-Zuidoost and is used as a housing complex for drug-addicted. As a typology it is very similar to a classical hotel. Small individual units of a size between 15-25m2 are surrounding a very generous lobby used as the central activity space for a group of up to 50 inhabitants. This “collective living room” has a beautiful rooflight and enjoys nice views on the park. On the top of this space is a little courtyard placed, offering the inhabitant’s an intimate outside space covered by the Amsterdam sky.
